BARRIE — Surveillance cameras were rolling last night as a Tesla Model S caught some serious air on a Barrie Street.
In the video posted above, the vehicle can be seen going airborne as it hits an incline leading up to a set of railroad tracks. Police say the electric vehicle landed more than 100 feet into the opposing lane, forcing it to skid across the roadway and hit a tree in a nearby school parking lot.
The driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. The driver was charged with dangerous driving under the Criminal Code of Canada and will appear in Barrie Court in October.
It may look "cool" and like something from out of the movies, but in reality the action of this driver put many lives at risk, including his own. He now faces Criminal Charges and will appear in court in October. https://t.co/J4z8x4ehQr https://t.co/bXHMUKJXV5— Barrie Police (@BarriePolice) August 29, 2018
